I watched the pilot and it's interesting.  I've never read Preacher, but I've read Crossed and The Boys, so I'm a fan of Garth Ennis' work.

If anyone missed the pilot, they are going to re-air it this Sunday at 9 pm EDT.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Yeah, so far I'm liking what they're doing with Preacher.  Tulip is a bit more energetic than I remember.  But that's probably an improvement.

It was a challenge to sit through 90 minutes of I don't know WTF is going on here, but Preacher looks potentially promising. I worry about shows that generate so many questions right off the bat but hopefully they get to it all in time.

I literally cannot understand a single word out of the Irish guy's mouth either. I'm gonna have to watch the re-airing with subtitles...

You couldn't understand him in the comic books either.  Ennis loves his dense, indecipherable Irish slang.  If they continue to stay true to that aspect of the comic, think of him like Brad Pitts' character in Snatch.
